One trait that’s shared by every successful business is the ability to adapt to the current business climate. That means not only keeping up on industry best practices on your own, it also means keeping your management and staff skill base up to date, too.
Businesses who invest in the tools that allow their workers to work at the top of their game rely on ongoing employee training to provide a serious return on investment (ROI). Not only does this investment pay off in the long run, it can also be done with a bare minimum of missed man hours.
If you’re willing to the extra mile by investing in employee training, here’s the least you’ll want to know about your options.
Online Training Programs
Thanks to the rapid advance of e-learning tools, employees can stay on-site while they’re in training. Not only that, but they can learn at their own; and rewind the lessons if they need to hear a lesson again.
Self-paced learning programs like the K Alliance online training course have long proven to be the most effective method for long term retention. When your lessons are browser based, on-the-fly learning becomes a habit.
No one knows your staff better than you do and if self-paced learning isn’t up their alley, you’ll want to consider bringing the training sessions in-house. These types of training sessions can be customized to suit your schedule.
Many companies find that scheduling a couple short training sessions as part of an employee retreat is more effective than a full day session.
Of course time is money when you’re in business, which is why the option of a full day, onsite training session is pretty appealing to managers.
We’d also suggest watching your prospective trainers in action before committing to having them come to your business. The last thing you want is a trainer who doesn’t live up to their reputation.
While on-site and online learning courses have their obvious benefits, they’re definitely pretty thin on fun. That’s why companies that can afford it shell out for off-site training courses at destination locations.
If you like keeping your employees on a little tighter leash, you can always opt for off-site training that’s done in a nearby education center. You’ll lose a day or two to training downtime, but many employees just like to get the training all done in one shot.
Every company has its own unique culture, so the training techniques that worked at your last company might not be appropriate for your current place of business. Be certain to take your cues from what’s best for the staff, not what’s best for you. Training that doesn’t engage the staff and really motivate them isn’t worth investing in at all.
No matter what type of training you provide for your employees, it’s definitely an investment that’s going to pay off. Not only will they have cutting edge skill sets, they’ll also know how much you value them.
